This is the only eye makeup remover that doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes. I bought it at a BOGO sale at Walgreens which made them really cheap. I have used the moisturizing one as well, but it leaves an oily residue. The only downside to this product is that the pads tend to be a little dry when you first open the package. All I do is spray a little water on them and they are fine for the rest of their use. They remove even waterproof makeup really well. Great product! The only eye makeup remover I will ever use!
I have been using this product for about 2 months now.
1.) Very non-irritating, good for people with sensitive skin
2.) Pleasant texture and smell and is very portable and packaged well
3.) Feels very refreshing on the face
1.) Does NOT remove mascara or any waterproof makeup
2.) You have to tug and pull alot if you want to remove heavy makeup.
This may be a good product for someone with sensitive skin who wears very light eye makeup (a wash of eyeshadow, no mascara, etc) but it is not for anyone who wears more than that. It is very difficult to remove mascara (I usually cannot get it all off with this, and after I go through about 3 pads, I usually retreat to another makeup remover to get the last bits of makeup off). I have used Almay's regular makeup remover pads as well and they do a much better job of removing makeup, the only problem is sometimes they can get a little greasy feeling. I think Clinique and Elizabeth Arden offer better products for removing eye makeup.
I don't get this product.
Everyone raves about how well it works so I thought I would try it out.
It was on 'sale' at Ulta - buy 2 get 2 free- so I bought 2 pads and 2 bottles of the remover.
As I wear eye makeup almost everyday, I tried it out when I got home. I was highly disappointed that the pads are SO thin and granted there are 100 of them it takes at least 3 just to remove masacara. It does not work well on waterproof anything. The jar concept for the pads is OK but the pads are almost too small and certainly too thin.
• Eyeshadow - yes.
• Regular masacara - ehh its okay but you have to use more than 3 of those thin pads.
• Waterproof eye makeup - forget it, you'll be rubbing your eye area for far too long!
I even tried using the remover in the bottle and its the same thing. ONLY difference is that you can soak your eye area and you'll get a wee-bit better performance than the pads alone.
SAVE YOUR MONEY!
I liked this products, it did what it said it would do, didn't irritate my eyes at all, took off everything and didn't feel overly greasy like some other makeup removers, though my favorite eye makeup removers have got to be Cliniques it quite pricy so definantely would repurchase this to save some $$$.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! It is definatley the best eye makeup remover I have ever used. The pads are great because I hate when eyemakeup gets on facecloths. I have sensitve skin / eyes and these don't bother me at all. Have been using them for probably 5 years.
BUT once I accidentally bought the non-oil-free ones and they were absolutley terrible. so make sure you get the oil free!!
Just a tip, sometimes if you're not wearing a lot of makeup a whole pad is too much so I cut some in half, and some into quarters so I have a variety of sizes to use! The quarter sized ones are great for fixing smudges while I'm doing my makeup.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Left my eyes greasy residue feeling and did not take anything off with a clean wipe. YUK. My bad for being cheap and not getting the Clinique eye makeup remover! Shame on me. Save your 5 bucks!
Not a fan. I may be sensitive to eye makeup remover but these were a little too abrasive and made my eyelids sting
These gentle pads remove most eyemakeup. For really stubborn makeup I use cold cream, but for most days these are clean and really mild.
I really love this product - it's much easier than buying a liquid/gel and it's not soaked in oil. It's moisturizing and it does its job (i.e. takes ALL eye makeup off, even stubborn eye liner) without irritating the skin.
These removed all my eye make up pretty well. My only complaint is that unlike the other oil based one, this one is thinner and I always end up pulling two or three pads in one go instead of just one. And since I'm anal about contamination I always end up either throwing the extra pulled away or superly cleaning my eyes with them. I don't like the idea of putting it back in the container after I've touched it. The thing I really like about them is the convenience: pop lid, pull out, swipe, and toss. Would repurchase.
